homemade bug spray at home

At first glance it may seem easier to simply buy bug spray. But here’s my case for DIY bug spray and making it on your own.

-If you have sensitive skin, these ingredients may help soothe skin instead of irritate it.

-You can make a HUGE batch and it cuts the cost considerably.

-You don’t have to deal with the undesirable smell traditional bug sprays leave behind, not to mention the sticky residue. 

-And finally, because making your own anything makes you feel kinda fabulous, even if it’s bug spray!
